THE DOWAGER COTTAGE:
EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR
Hannibal, MO – Julie and John Rolsen wanted to build a
secluded cottage that would offer the ultimate in romance and privacy to guests
of Garth Woodside Mansion. Their dream was to include absolutely
everything that anyone might ever want for a very special and intimate
getaway. Not a detail was overlooked,
and none of the special touches that they knew their guests sought were
spared. What resulted was the
spectacular, three story stone Dowager Cottage, now offering the perfect refuge
What did it take
for Garth Woodside Mansion
to create an extremely romantic setting?
Look for not just one, but two.
Guests can turn on one fireplace remotely from the double whirlpool
tub in the bath, and the other one from the bedroom, while lying in
bed. The bedroom fireplace has a beautiful
window over it, allowing one to view the stars over the fireplace at
and Hot tubs: Again, the Rolsens knew their guests
looking for the ultimate in romance would want the double whirlpool tub in
the bath, but they didn’t stop there.
A six-person Hot Springs
hot tub is also found on the cottage’s extremely private deck, overlooking
linens and baths: The enormous king sized bed sports
800-thread count linens. For those
who don’t know about thread counts, this feels like the ultimate in satiny
sheets. The bathroom offers a ten
by four-and-a-half foot shower with eleven jets, including one that rains
down from the top. Technically,
this should count as a whirlpool tub, as it’s ultimately a vertical
whirlpool. There are two sinks, and
lest you think the Rolsens forgot anything, one is taller than the other,
to offer something for the tall and something for the shorter guests. Finally, a bidet in the water closet rounds
out the offerings here.
- Privacy: Knowing intimacy means seclusion, the cottage offers the
utmost in privacy. For those who’d
rather not see anyone but each other, breakfast is served in the
cottage. The house-keeper will
bring a four course breakfast, set the table in the cottage’s private
kitchenette, and just before she leaves she will light the tiny light in
the bedroom with the switch in the kitchen to let guests know she is on
the way OUT the door. Voila!
Breakfast in the privacy of your own kitchen! When guests arrive, they find
the fridge stocked with veggie and meat platters too.
of space to spread out & all the comforts of the alphabet:
A beautiful spiral staircase leads to a loft living area with big
windows overlooking the tall oaks in the far back yard. For those who never like going
unplugged, have no fear. There is a
TV, VCR/DVD and a BOSE theater surround-sound system and a 300-volume DVD
library just in case additional entertainment is needed.
Mansion is in the process of
adding two more cottage units. While the new cottages are a rival the
Dowager, they will be smaller versions offering romantic amenities including
fireplaces and whirlpool tubs, privacy and modern furnishings. The two new
cottages are slated to be open by fall, 2004.
Mansion is less than two hours from St. Louis, in Hannibal, MO. A fortress for Victorian romance, the Garth Woodside
Mansion offers a respite
from life’s pressures. It was recently
selected by inngoers as one of the top five inns in the world in the Best of
BedandBreakfast.com Awards. For more information on Garth Woodside
